The U.S. Marine Corps’ Amphibious Combat Vehicle program reached another milestone, proving the vehicle’s ability to deliver future combat power from ship to shore and follow-on objectives. Program Executive Officer Land Systems recently completed testing on the ACV, which proved the new vehicles' ability to not only take on challenging surf, but also complete a long swim from ship to shore and back.

The Warrior Platform is an ongoing project initiated by the Republic of Korea (ROK) Army. Its goal is to modernize individual equipment of all its combat troops and bring them up to contemporary standards and beyond.

Kingston Digital Europe Co LLP, the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, announced today the Managed model of IronKe D300 Serialized (D300SM) encrypted USB Flash drive is now available. A fully-encrypted managed USB drive is an essential component in following industry standards and the strong data encryption of the D300 series is what makes this drive compliant for data storage under GDPR and the New York financial regulations.

Measuring Biological Aptitude (MBA) aims to identify, understand, and monitor in real time the biology that underlies success in specialized roles. A new program out of DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office could help the U.S. Department of Defense enhance and sustain military readiness both by revolutionizing how troops train, perform, and recover, and by mitigating shortages of highly qualified candidates for extremely specialized roles.

The U.S. Army Engineer School combined forces with the U.S. Army Military Police School and presented a virtual staff ride (VSR) overview brief on 22 January at Fort Leonard Wood's Digital Training Facility. The objective of the brief was to discuss the future utilization of Large-Scale Combat Operations VSRs, such as the newly developed World War II Stalingrad and Korean War Chipyong-ni VSR. Sam Campbell reports on U.S. Army's website.

Libratus, the AI bot that made the news in 2017 for cleaning out four professional poker players in a game of no-limit Texas Hold 'em, has been called up to work for The Pentagon. Tuomas Sandholm's new startup, called Strategy Robot, is using the same technology today for government use. It now has a $10 million contract with the US Army.

For nearly three decades, every aspect of drone technology has seen some improvement, including materials used, sensors to communication hardware and software, and even the batteries that power those computers and sensors. The US Army has also seen the limitations of what it can and cannot do with a drone that has to either operate from a runway or be launched from a rail and caught on a hook. Into this mix of requirements and new possibility flies the Resolute Eagle, made by PAE ISR, complete with an ad hoc network system from Persistent Systems. The US Army is looking at a range of drones for possible Shadow replacement, and Resolute Eagle will have to provide what it takes.

The Synthetic Training Environment (STE) is the future of distributed interactive simulation (DIS), a technology that have been developping for decades. The goal of this constently evolving technology is to improve the formation of soldiers. However, today, simulations in the integrated training environment do not provide the realism, interoperability, affordability and availability necessary for the breadth of training that the Army envisions for the future. The STE will be able to do all that-it will be flexible, affordable and available at the point of need.

On 11 January 2019, at the Military Technical Institute (MTI), Minister of Defense Aleksandar Vulin, Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces Lieutenant General Milan Mojsilović, accompanied by Assistant of the Minister of Defense for Material Resources Nenad Miloradović PhD, attended the presentation of weapons and military equipment that have been introduced into the operational use of the Serbian Armed Forces in 2018 or are in the final phase of testing.
